She's got to be thrilled by this
She’s got to be thrilled by this one

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly has good news for the rabid xenophobes who want all the brown people to go away: Last night, he announced DHS would rescind an Obama administration policy — never fully implemented because of court challenges — protecting undocumented parents of U.S. citizens from deportation. The announcement was met with great approval from the sort of people who jump into comment sections to clarify that “undocumented migrant” is just the liberal media’s word for ILLEGAL ALIEN.

The policy was one of two Obama orders on deportation priorities that Donald Trump had promised to undo; the other, the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals program, or DACA, remains in place for now, and allows people who were brought to the US as children to apply for work permits. The order Kelly wiped out, Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA — and why can’t Democrats come up with catchier names?) was a follow-up order that would have allowed some four million parents of children born here to stay in the country, and would have expanded the number of young people afforded protection under DACA. So now we can look forward to the spectacle of families being torn apart, just like Donald Trump said he’d hate to see, but you know, we have to be tough, because the law is the law and no one who breaks the law gets a free pass. Unless it’s a law Republicans don’t like — then, even investigating it is a witch hunt.

DAPA had been challenged in court by Texas as soon as the Obama administration tried to put it in place, and Thursday was the deadline the judge had set for the parties to come up with a schedule to resolve the case. Instead, Kelly solved the whole problem by making the policy vanish altogether, since, as the DHS website explained, there’s “no credible path forward” in the courts. Especially not in an administration that wants to deport everyone it possibly can. Deporting some parents of anchor babies is nothing for the guy who thought the 14th amendment is optional.

Kelly was careful to say DACA would remain in place, at least until it doesn’t:

“This rescission will not affect the terms of the original DACA program as outlined in the June 15, 2012 memorandum,” the department said online. Kelly said he made the decision after consulting with the U.S. attorney general.

The timing, of course, couldn’t be better — while that court deadline seems to be the main reason for rescinding DAPA, it had to have given the administration and its base (the most base base) a certain knife-twisting thrill that Thursday was also the five-year anniversary of Obama issuing his DACA memo.

“They chose the fifth anniversary of DACA to do this,” Cecilia Munoz, a former senior White House staff member under the Obama administration, posted on Twitter.

Rightwingers certainly appreciated the gesture, although they’re still likely to fly into a rage when they hear a phone menu allowing people to press Ocho for the Español and they still want their country back. Tom Fitton, president of wingnut group Judicial Watch, took a moment away from calling for the elimination of the “unconstitutional special counsel” to celebrate and complain:

This latest step in advancing the New Cruelty must be pretty satisfying to the Deport Everyone crowd, who want all law-breakers sternly dealt with until they get a speeding ticket. We bet this lady shouting “Not our kids, not our problem!” has a warm feeling in her All-American heart:

DAPA would have protected some four million people, and now we can shift money that would have been wasted on schools and roads to the important business of rounding them all up, so everyone will have a job again. The next to go has to be DACA, which protects a much smaller number of people — about 750,000 — obviously a huge criminal horde which does terror to us by leaving their wallets in their cars when ICE scoops them up.

Oh, sure, Trump has made gestures toward what he’s been told is empathy for DREAMers, like when he said in a January interview that DACA kids “shouldn’t be worried” because after all, “I have a big heart.” But if his administration keeps running into scandals, it might be necessary to rescind DACA, too. The Altar of Rightwing Poll Numbers demands frequent offerings of fresh red meat.

    If Melania is deported, who will raise Barron?

  • Foulmouthed Midwesterner

    I know I feel safer kicking citizen kids into foster care so their parents can be punished for their audacity in coming here to find jobs and support them. USA! USA!

    • Explody Brain

      And, purely from a taxpayer point of view, I’m so happy to pay foster parents to raise kids who still have real parents!

      (And then pay for all the sociological issues that come with kids who go through the foster care system.)

      I mean, if you just want to look at EVERYTHING from a purely greedy POV…

      • Shawn Renee Ernoehazy

        From a psychological point of view; needlessly shoving kids into the foster care system (that has been mostly outsourced to nonprofits, some religious) that run ads in the jobs sections of the newspapers is expensive and damaging to kids. I think I accidentally ran into the answer…it creates jobs for real Americans! They can use the stipend for each kid for whatever, then the kids behavior becomes a “diagnosis” that qualifies them for SSI, and PROFIT! Sick and demented as it is. I honestly see the best in others; but I have seen too much of this also. I am already anticipating that on Sunday I will be evaluating mentally ill (but not in a real crisis) folks trying to get 5150’d for an air-conditioned room to stay in as the weather is going to be hot this weekend.

  • Foulmouthed Midwesterner

    Fun fact: due to Congress’ failure to pass any immigration reform for the past 20+ years, there are many families (Latinos especially) where citizenship/legal status literally skips a generation – so grandparents may have docs, parents don’t, and their kids are citizens. Glad the party of family values wants to address this glaring inequity. Oh wait, this is actually the opposite thing?

  • Explody Brain

    Can we track that lady in the top picture and offer her some nice socialized remedial education?

    For realz. It will improve her life.

      How old is your account?

      I am not at all familiar with it. I only read tweets. Don’t even have a Twitter account and likely will never get one. I think, and I am almost 100% wrong on this, that some bot accounts can be programmed to latch on to recent accounts even if they’re inactive? It sounds more logical in my head.

    • Master Contrail Program

      My Twitter I created in 2009 and have never used has apparently been hawking diet pills to my zero followers for years. So….probably bot.

    • alpacapunchbowl

      I got an email from “Twitter” that my account had been logged into from somewhere in NY state and recommending I change my password. I haven’t done a single thing with the account since a now-former friend cajoled me into opening it, I dunno, 10 years ago? Has twitter been around that long?
      The email seemed suspect to me, to be honest, so I haven’t done anything.

    Walnuts Explains It All For You

    Tara Golshan, Vox

    Generally, what are the big problems this bill is trying to solve?

    John McCain

    Almost all of them. They’re trying to get to 51 votes.

    Tara Golshan

    Policy-wise. What are the problems [in the American health care system] this is trying to solve — and is the bill doing that right now?

    John McCain

    Well, it’s whether you have full repeal, whether you have partial repeal, whether you have the basis of it. It’s spread all over.

    Tara Golshan

    But based on the specifics of the bill you have heard so far, is it solving the problems [in the health care system]?

    John McCain

    What I hear is that we have not reached consensus. That’s what everybody knows.

    Tara Golshan

    Right, but outside of getting the votes. From what you hear of the actual legislation being written, is it solving the problems you see —

    John McCain

    It’s not being written. Because there’s no consensus.

    Tara Golshan

    But generally speaking, what are the big problems it is trying to solve?

    John McCain

    You name it. Everything from the repeal caucus, which as you know, they have made their views very clear — Rand Paul, etc. And then there are the others on the other side of the spectrum that just want to make minor changes to the present system. There’s not consensus.

          For years my sister didn’t realize that you could mash actual potatoes and make mashed potatoes. She thought they came in a box and you added milk and butter, because those were the kind Mom always made.

          • Shanzgood 22 Days

            I had to teach a neighbor lady that to make mashed potatoes, you have to actually MASH them. With a masher (I gave her mine.) They don’t just automatically get mashy when you boil them in a pot, no matter how much milk and butter you put in them.

            Scary thing is that she had a little kid. Probably because she thought you only had to take the birth control pill whenever you have sex

          • Oblios_Cap

            If you boil them long enough, you get starch water.

          • Shanzgood 21 Days

            I think that’s why she came over asking why it was taking so long. I went back with her and she was confused as to why the potatoes were still solid after cooking for so long. Ugh.

      Yeah, good question. I’ve often wanted to see a fantasy re-write of history where the Native Americans had guns, horses and cannon when the Europeans arrived. They would have had to work fast, before all the European diseases got a hold of them.

    Today, Michael Needham is that man, as he is every day he has an oped published.

    Here’s the top rated response thusfar with 100 likes from user Atlanta Dan:

    The AHCA is compassionate

    Freedom is slavery

    The trick with the WAPO comments section is to have it set to show “most liked” first. Trolls never get upwards of 100 likes and that method gives a much better gauge on opinion.

            You have no idea how much I appreciate that.

            I lived for a time in San Diego, at Nimitz. I was a lot happier there and I wished I could have stayed.

            My wife has family in Jersey, Red Bank, I think. When her dad died, we went up there and it felt like a weight was lifted. I know that might sound strange, but it’s true.

            I have no accent. I use no colloquialisms. I never adopted “y’all”, my mother raised me better. I speak like every television generation guy in his forties does. I really can’t even fake the southern accent. I’m frankly better at faking the Midwestern cadence. I also talk super fast, which you can probably guess means that most southerners can’t even follow what I’m saying.

            And now I am rambling and I am sorry about that. I really just want to be accepted for who I am, not where I live.

      To be honest, that’s been a concern since the program’s inception, although now instead of just having to mention it as a hypothetical but fairly remote possibility to be taken into consideration, it’s more of a “yeah, we know they want to deport your ass anyway, so…”

      A guy was picked up by ICE at the commuter train station a few blocks from my house a few weeks ago. He came here when he was a teenager, and he’s newly married. They’d applied for him to get a green card based on the marriage, which is likely how ICE ended up taking him right out of his car while his wife watched from the passenger seat, horrified.

          There was an uproar, as our local police dept showed up on the scene while it was happening, and people were pissed. They had to put out a statement saying they were there because someone called them, not because they were helping ICE.

        • h4rr4r

          Same guy.

          He is omnipotent and does not give a fuck. Yet, likes to talk a big game.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            The way I see it is that according to their holy book he gave us a beautiful, abundant planet and lots of very clear, plain and simple rules to live by, so many that they start to repeat themselves, so if it’s fucked up we did it to ourselves. I wouldn’t blame him for not giving a fuck after that.

          • h4rr4r

            Please explain which rule we broke that made it ok to give babies cancer.

            Not giving a fuck, when you are not constrained by even time and allowing babies to have cancer makes you a demon.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            We don’t give anyone cancer, and neither does god because there is no god. Different cancers are caused by different things, but primarily by gene mutations, some of which can be inherited. Evolution is based on beneficial mutations occurring which improve a species’ chances of survival, but mutations can also be neutral or harmful. Less than half the naturally occurring mutations are neutral, and 99% of the remainder are harmful.

            Of course, humans can fuck with this natural ratio. Years of extreme stress or exposure to toxins can produce harmful mutations, as happened with a friend of mine. There were 4 children in the family, all suffered years of violent physical and emotional abuse as children, all 4 died of cancer before they were 60.

          • h4rr4r

            That does not sound very Christian.

            I don’t disagree, I simply was pointing out if their God exists he is a demon.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            It all comes back to the saying that if god is omnipotent, then he is not benevolent, and if he is benevolent, then he is not omnipotent. Nothing about any god I’ve read about in any holy book makes rational sense, they all use circular logic. I just figure that if there is some kind of supreme being, then my statement about giving us a pretty nice planet and some pretty simple rules holds true, because after that why would they need to hang around? The job is done after that, time to go off and do something more fun on the other side of the universe. Or make a new universe somewhere else. Or take a nap. The idea that gods hang around and watch everything we do and make little notes of all our sins in a big book and observe every sparrow falling, that’s just shit the religions made up to scare people. Supreme beings must have better things to do with their time.

            You’re welcome. The problem with humans is that they are so damned egotistical. They think the human race is SO important and SO special that it must have been created by a god, who is SO devoted to us that they hang around watching everything we do and giving a damn. I always found this idea distasteful – as if we were specimens under a microscope. The Earth is a tiny speck in a huge galaxy in a possibly limitless universe filled with billions of other galaxies, and we are not that important in the great scheme of things.

I also like to quote the story of the Angels who visited Lot in Sodom to my fundamentalist relatives, the one where Lot offered the Sodomites his virgin daughters to rape instead of the “strangers.” They don’t like that one, and it’s entertaining to watch them struggle to find a way to justify it.

          • unclejeems

            Well, it’ll be difficult to convince them, since they’ve never read the Bible, and they all think St. Ronnie rose on the third day.

          • WomanInThePersistence

            That’s actually not true. Many of these loonies obsessively read the Bible, which they refer to as Scripture. They simply fail to understand it, or to actually follow any of the nice, loving teachings. The beatitudes are utterly beyond their feeble minds. Because they are stupid assholes.

          • unclejeems

            “Stupid assholes” is correct. But if you’ll look on the Web for recent reputable surveys of Americans who claim to be Christians, you’ll see that there’s plenty of evidence that biblical literacy is actually very low among the faithful. Even faith-based (sic) sites bemoan the ignorance of the zealous.

            Of course, that doesn’t keep one-third of the population from believing that everything in the book is literally true and correct–whether they know what’s in it or not. So if a pastor at some fundy church somewhere got on a kick, and told his congregation that Jesus hated Jews, and that that was in the Bible, most of them would believe that–as the inspired word of God.

            What a world.

  • Pre-Existing Condition Jack

    OT: An inch deep in WAPO today and Dana Milbank hits it out of the park in response to Ivanka’s statement on the “viciousness”.

    Here are a few sources the blindsided footwear magnate might consult to understand why things are so vicious:

    ●Her brother Eric. The previous week,
    he called the head of the Democratic Party a “total whack job” and
    declared that “morality is just gone” from Democrats. “To me, they’re
    not even people,” he said.

    ●Her
    brother Donald Jr. On Wednesday, after the shooting at the Republican
    congressional baseball team practice, the president’s son retweeted with approval a claim tying the shooting to “NY elites glorifying the assassination of our President.”

    ●Newt Gingrich. On Thursday, the informal Trump adviser and surrogate tweeted a conspiracy claim
    that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III “is now clearly the tip of
    the deep-state spear aimed at destroying or at a minimum undermining and
    crippling the Trump presidency.”

    ●Her dad. The president on Thursday went on yet another Twitter tirade. He declared himself
    the victim of the “single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political
    history — led by some very bad and conflicted people!” And he renewed
    his attack on his vanquished opponent, saying, “Crooked H destroyed phones w/hammer.”

    This is why Washington is so vicious right now. Plenty bad before
    Trump’s campaign and presidency, it has gotten markedly worse. This is
    what happens when the president and his surrogates portray opponents as
    immoral, subhuman and criminal, when they hack away at the courts, the
    press and other pillars of a free society — and when they promote
    conspiracy theories suggesting American justice is tainted.

    I have been looking for the words to express this and there they are.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/ivanka-trump-has-noticed-a-new-level-of-viciousness-its-sources-are-clear/2017/06/16/2c4d6424-528b-11e7-be25-3a519335381c_story.html?tid=pm_opinions_pop

  • Ryan Denniston

    “So now we can look forward to the spectacle of families being torn
    apart, just like Donald Trump said he’d hate to see, but you know, we
    have to be tough, because the law is the law and no one who breaks the
    law gets a free pass.”

    Maybe Invaka can convince Trump to be magnanimous, to be good. Trump can pardon them for breaking the law by entering the US. Oh, and Ivanka, hide all the mirrors!

      I’m so sick of this “women are a civilizing influence on men” shit. If you think we’re so much better, why not let US rule the world, you hypocritical cop-outs?

      • Pre-Existing Condition Jack

        Agreed!

        • Shanzgood 21 Days

          Honestly, though, women can be just as barbaric as men. I’m just tired of men using their penii as an excuse to be irresponsible and then blaming women for not keeping them under control.

          • Pre-Existing Condition Jack

            Me too. Men cop out a lot and it’s personally insulting. The implication is that I, myself, cannot possibly be responsible for myself because of some skin?

            We’re all responsible for our own lives. It’s nobody’s fault but mine when I screw up. My wife screws up way less and is much better at the personal responsibility thing than any man I know.

            A lot of words for “you’re 100% right”.

      • NastyBossetti

        Because we’re too delicate for that kind of thing, and we should only rule the world by using our feminine wiles to influence the men around us to do right.

      • Ryan Denniston

        Gladly. I was relying on the media narrative that Ivanka can moderate Trump. I was also relying on Trump’s bizarre statements regarding his daughter in the past to suggest she has a close relationship and is in a position to be listened to.

        • Shanzgood 21 Days

          Oh, I wasn’t yelling at you, I was just yelling. I’m still mad about my garbage neighbor’s dogs attacking my nice neighbor and her twee little dogs this morning.

          • WomanInThePersistence

            As the owner of a twee little dog, I salute you.

          • Shanzgood 21 Days

            The dogs need to go to the vet but Neighbor can’t afford it. That big dog was tossing them around like they were squirrels. And it bit the nice neighbor, too. Freaking idiots. It took three of us to rescue the two little ones from the big ones.

          • WomanInThePersistence

            Well, fuck. I used to have two twee little dogs. When Freya was attacked, the ladies that owned the bigger dogs behaved without reproach. They controlled their dogs and paid the vet bills. Freya died from her injuries, and these ladies even brought a lavender plant. Let it be said, this was NOT a crazed attack,, merely a couple of dogs being surprised and each making one bite. She was just so small.

          • Shanzgood 21 Days

            Poor thing! I’m so sorry! But good on those other ladies for stepping up.

            Now I need to go check on Nice Neighbor again. She had her pups in a warm bath before to clean them up and calm them and check their injuries. I have some doggie NSAID (for my cat) but if they have internal injuries, that’s probably no bueno because NSAIDs and blood thinners are contraindicated.

            Garbage neighbor isn’t home yet.

          • WomanInThePersistence

            Definitely check on Nice Neighbor and her wee beasties. I don’t know how it is in Kansas, but around here many of the emergency animal hospitals have payment plans.

          • Shanzgood 21 Days

            I found one for her.

          • WomanInThePersistence

            Good for you.

    • Pre-Existing Condition Jack

      It’s not Ivanka’s job to play Jimminy Cricket. Donnie’s not apt to listen to his own daughter about anything because the man DOES NOT LISTEN to anyone.

      I am not giving Ivanka a pass here, she’s corrupt as hell too. Just saying this is not her job. Don’t know what, exactly, her job is, but it’s not this.

      • Ryan Denniston

        It’s the job the media need her to fill to normalize Trump.

        • Pre-Existing Condition Jack

          And that’s why I’m resisting it.

          None of it will, nor should, even come close to “normal”.

          I fight severe mental health issues. Normalcy is something like the Holy Grail. It’s a cherished thing, not something I can be reckless with. My own reality is in question every. Single. Day. I gaslight MYSELF.

          I am not handing the reigns of reality over to anyone else, especially anyone with more of a reality problem than I have.

          And now I have to end with the obligatory “No, I’m not prone to violence and no, I’m not in crisis.” That last part is not you, that’s just how I have to frame any discussion like this.

    Trump’s Cuba policy does what his other policies have done. Absolutely nothing but it does make his base happy.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-announces-revisions-to-parts-of-obamas-cuba-policy/2017/06/16/dee8671c-52ab-11e7-91eb-9611861a988f_story.html

    Administration officials who briefed reporters ahead of Trump’s address, on White
    House-imposed condition of anonymity, said no policy changes would go
    immediately into effect. Instead, the new presidential directive will
    order the Treasury and Commerce departments to begin within 30 days to
    write new regulations that reverse some of those Obama implemented to
    ease the U.S. embargo against Cuba that has remained in place for nearly
    60 years. Only Congress can lift it.

    Asked whether companies that have already signed Cuban contracts, such as Starwood Hotels and Resorts, should expect to lose money, an official said, “that will be handled in the specifics of regulations by Treasury and Commerce.” But “the administration’s intent,” the official said, “is not to disrupt existing transactions that have [already] occurred.”

    • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

    About that pee tape anticipation…

    If Rosenstein was actually in the tank for Trump, he wouldn’t have appointed Mueller to investigate him — it’s always been clear that Mueller takes this very seriously and isn’t playing around. Rosenstein could have appointed someone who would just pretend to do an investigation and then declare the the matter closed. Or, he could have not appointed anyone.

    So, with regard to the latest memo, I think we should be prepared for the alternate scenario that a story is about to come out with damaging info against Comey or Mueller, it may be planted propaganda, and a lot of our mainstream media sources will fall for it.

    It’s important to note that actual Job approval polls differ wildly from, say, polls projecting the probable winner of an election.

      It’s scary that Amazon is getting so big. I really get leery about monopolies. I was old enough to remember how horrible the Bells were.

      • Vagenda and Pee-ara

        It’s also scary because Amazon is rolling out “cashier less” super markets. That should put a few million more unskilled people out of work. Not that I see anything scary about hordes of people (taxi and truck drivers, cashiers, etc…) not having any work or food. I’m sure they’ll all just drop dead, while thinking “ain’t the elites of Silicon Valley great, for bringing me so much leisure time?”

        • Pre-Existing Condition Jack

          This move seems destined to put another nail in the coffin of unionization.

          I still remember when every single working person in my family was in a union. Unions were always a good thing. Thanks, Reagan.

          • Vagenda and Pee-ara

            I have to lol at the idiots in my city who work for Boeing. They consistently vote to keep the union out. They just voted “no” again, and Boeing thanked them by laying them off. Who needs a decent paying job with benefits, that’s steady work? I’d much rather see the CEO get $50 million a year. Boeing’s ad campaign showed the union president’ s house, to show how rich he was. The union should have countered with the amount of salary the CEO takes in, but they were too stupid.

          • Pre-Existing Condition Jack

            It was drummed into my brain from a young age and continues to this day. I come from a union family. No one in my family went to college or trade school. It was all Army, then union job.

            My step-dad worked for the Rail Road, he was a member of the union.He had a pension he’d paid into his whole life. Every damned year, congress would vote on trying to raid his pension. I have no idea how that works, but it was in his union newsletter and he talked about it every. Single. Time.

            It is funny, though, that the biggest union busting president in history was once president of a union. Go figure.

          • Vagenda and Pee-ara

            Reagan permanently fucked this country.

            More ways than we can possible count.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      As some wag at the NYT comments said, “What did they get for that? Two bags of granola?”

  • Lance Thrustwell

    Why is no one promoting my compromise? People who’ve been here a substantial amount of time (say, 3+ years) and have provable “roots” in the community – reasonably steady work, kids, no criminal record, community involvement, etc. – get to stay. Period. They’re grandfathered in, early bird gets the worm.

    Everyone else? Deport ’em if you can catch ’em. I guess. And build the damn wall if you think it’s so important. But don’t break up families and deport tax-paying residents contributing to society! Give ’em an achievable path to citizenship.

    There. I would go even more lax and pro-immigrant than that, personally, but I think people ought to consider the kind of compromise I’m describing, at least for the short run. Thoughts?

    • Me not sure

      Parents of citizens shouldn’t be kicked out if the child is a minor, at the very least.

      • Lance Thrustwell

        Right! And if we’re talking about anything other than newborns, then we’re talking about families where the parent(s) have been working and living here for quite a while. Contributing to the economy. It’s not common sense to kick them out. Not only is it cruel, I think it’s bad economics.

      If they have anything but lily-white skin, they’re out. This isn’t about character, it’s about skin color.

      • Jan Ness

        Like I said earlier these same ppl spend time and lots of money to get the same skin color of those they hate

    • Cat Cafe for the Prosecution

      They pay over a billion dollars in taxes, too, in the form of sales tax, phone tax, gas tax, etc, as well as representing EXACTLY the “family values” the assholes pretend to champion–hard working, church-going, strong families who love America. It’s pure, hateful racism. (No one seems to care about the millions of undocumented immigrants from China, Russia, and Canada.)

      I also fervently support the idea of guest worker visas. For fuck’s sake, the large agricultural corporations ALL depend on cheap labor from undocumented immigrants, and that’s why most of the Mexican, Salvadoran, Guatemalan, etc, workers come here–they’re dirt poor and often fleeing death squads (that WE set up) and there are jobs here!

      It’s this horrific dirty little secret–again, no one seems to care about cracking down on the source of the problem–the wealthy who HIRE these workers. We need a guest worker visa: they can come here legally, and, if they stay and contribute positively, they should have a path to citizenship–which would STRENGTHEN the country, the same way all previous waves of hard-working immigrants have. In some cases, it is immigrants who are actually resuscitating dying factory towns.

      They should have access to health care–even from a purely selfish point of view–they’re PICKING YOUR FRUITS AND VEGETABLES. We should gladly educate their children–these kids go on to become badly needed doctors, scientists, teachers, etc. Of course they should have drivers’ licenses. And of course we should welcome them as citizens. We NEED young, strong, hardworking, determined people.

        That made way too much sense now look what you done did: Hatey Cardboard Sign Lady’s little head esploded! All those rocks could have caused considerable damage!

    • Vagenda and Pee-ara

      Mexicans self deported after the Bush regime tanked the economy. I’m guessing in another two years, Mexico will be begging Trump to build a wall, to keep everyone who is trying to escape America on this side of the fence.

  • Jan Ness

    I wonder how much time they spend laying in the sun and money on tanning products to become as brown as the people they want to kick out. Just asking…

        I’m sure her daddy proudly cracked some black skulls in 1950s Mississippi, too. Ugh, these people really are deplorable.

            Thank God we have Betsy DeVos in charge of schools now! I’m sure the level of critical thinking will only get better after we start teaching science from The Book of Genesis.

      Just think: Betsy DeVos is gunna make that more gooder.

    I hate starting to feel less than horrified about a person, researching them, then finding out just how horrible they actually are.

    Oh well, at least I know now.

    How many of the people cheering this policy are also anti-abortion rights because they love children?

      Well, up until the children are born. If “it” is brown then grab “it” by the ankles and fling it back over the fence like the sack of garbage it is because Jesus said bless the little white children, only.

      I always wondered what happened to Lawrence Welk’s bubble machine.

      Maybe he’ll rethink his policy, and make it “No Mexicans, except the hot women, allowed.” I can actually picture him doing that.

    I think most Trumpeters have language skills equivalent to, what, the average fifth grader? That may be too generous.

    • Vagenda and Pee-ara

      My nephew is in third grade, and he can spell better than that. He can also form a coherent thought, unlike the POTUS.

    One thing that drives me nuts is they don’t want them here but maybe they’ll serve them at one of the “ALL INCLUSIVE RESORTS” we have in Mexico and using up all their natural resources at their expense. Okay to exploit but not to embrace as part of humanity.

    • Vagenda and Pee-ara

      Don’t forget a good part of America actually belonged to Mexico at one point, too. I’d be delighted to let Mexico have Texas back.

    hows it go – first they came for the Hispanics but i was not one so i said nothing – then they came for the gays but i am not one so i said nothing again, and then after they came for the rest they came for me – and no one was left to speak up for me –

  • What? All of the criminal and ethics investigations aren’t enough to convince Tom Fitton that the Republican form of government is already back and operating the way it always has?

    • Vagenda and Pee-ara

      My first clue was when the stock market rallied hard the day after Dump’s election. The bank stocks were soaring, because at long last they were going to get to fuck the middle class again. It had been a whole eight years. Thank God we have an administration dedicated to helping bankers get back on their feet.

  • Vagenda and Pee-ara

    Yeah, and it’s not like our aging, white, Republican base needs a lot of young people to pay FICA taxes, so they can keep getting their sweet socialist SocialISM Security and Medicare or anything. Oh, wait, we were going to fix that with more tax cuts for the rich. Well, I don’t see how any of this can end badly, at all! Make America Great Again!
